They are listed with other books and material that might help you in Resources.

5. Advisory Board
I could use your help to make this a better site. I’ll send you videos and posts ahead of time to get your feedback. I’ll contact you by email, send you something to read or watch, and ask for your feedback. Maybe once a month; given my current workload, probably less than that.
